  1. Hadn't been pulled over in quite a long time, probably about 14 years at the time. Got pulled over entering one of those 25 miles areas too while on vacation in Ohio (I live in PA). I think I was going over 40 also. Had the whole family in the car. Cop was nice, let me off with a warning and then told us places we might want to visit while we were in town.
  2. interested in a similar road trip at some point, also coming from the philly area.
  3. Disappointed I've never been able to make it down to 1 of these, but always love following along. 1st class operation imo.
  4. 1st off, if you do the jelly 1st and then contaminate the PB, that's pretty silly. jelly needs to be refrigerated after you open it, PB doesn't. so you're putting jelly into the PB and then sticking it in a cabinet. in the days before squeeze jelly, i used 1 knife to get some jelly out (but haven't spread it yet), wipe off knife on bread, then use on PB. now i just squeeze the jelly out so only 1 knife. don't see a reason to not use 2 knives if you're worried about it though. the dishwasher doesn't care.
  5. the 2 votes for moron are probably selling themselves short. you were able to figure out how to vote in the poll in the 1st place. that alone probably scores you out of the bottom 10%
  6. I debated how above average I think of myself, but settled on 20-40% range. I probably could have gone 20% but I'm also humble Why? Was always a good student. Had some honors classes in highschool. Graduated college in 4 years with a dual major. Have a master's degree. Participate in trivia games in bars and events and always finish in the top 3rd of all participants. But I also realize that 1, there are a lot of people in the world who just aren't very bright, so that helps bump me up. And I also know there are many people brighter. Sure, I had honors classes but it didn't finish in the top of my graduating class. And sure, I have few degrees, but they were from state schools, not some ivy league. And sure, I finish top 3rd at trivia nights but I rarely win.
  7. Dogs are awesome. Been married 20 years and had 4 of them. But if you're looking to convince her otherwise, let me share some of the cons. Traveling or coming home late is very difficult. You either need some family member to help you out or have to pay someone to do it. 1st 2 dogs were small and my mom could watch them. Current 2 dogs are big and mom is older now. So we have to pay someone whenever we travel. Dogs are pretty damn expensive. Few hundred (or more) but to buy them. Even if you're adopting a rescue. Vet bills are crazy high, even for the normal visits. Some day the dog will be old and you'll be attached to it you'll spend even more to keep it alive. Dog food, toys and so on, all cost. You'll have to spend time (and possibly money) to train the dog, assuming you don't get one that is already trained. Might have to say goodbye to your nice carpet or nice things if the dogs decides to destroy them during that process. If you don't have a fenced yard, you'll have to walk the dog on the regular. That includes in the rain, in the cold, in the snow. And if you are lucky enough to have a fenced yard, get rid to pick up dog ####. Even though your wife (and kids if you have them) will say they'll take care of the dog, it would not shock me if you end up being the main person training and taking care of the dog. I was the guy who didn't want a dog and my family finally wore me down. And yes, I take them to every vet appointment. I am the main person training the dogs. And I do a lot of the daily stuff for them (although the kids and wife do feed, etc too). If you end up like me and get a dog, there are a lot of positives to it too. I've been really lucky with the dogs I've had and they've brought a lot of joy to our family. Good luck with whatever you decide.
  8. was going to say any silver, but of course i've picked up pennies before. but i've also left them. usually i pick them up and hand them to my son (he has a huge jar of coins). but all of it depends the conditions of where the coins are laying.
  9. A few weeks ago was the 1st time in a long time. And I didn't get anything. My daughter asked to stop there so I got food for her and my son. I probably ate a few of their fries, but otherwise nothing for me. Kids never really wanted MickeyDs, we were more Wendys people (or 5 Guys) on the rare occasion we get fast food burgers. They got a MickeyD gift card from someone at Xmas so they gave it another shot. And we have a McDonald's 1 block from our house.
  10. I had a drunk driver full on rear end me before. After getting out of the car and talking, he took off once he knew we had already called the cops. He was too drunk to remember he had already handed me his information though. So I knew exactly who he was and where he lived. Police didn't care. Anyway, the guy calls me and up and says the same you heard, let's not go through insurance. So I drove my car to a bunch of auto places telling them the situation until I got a really high estimate. Sent it to him and said, if you're willing to pay this, we're square. He paid it. I traded the car in and that plus the money he paid was more than I bought the car for.
  11. based on the ones already listed, the Divergent and Maze Runner series seem like obvious options.
